Can someone give me pointers on how I can set up a website honeypot using Apache/PHP/MySQL. I am a newbie and trying to learn how I can do this. If there can be step by step instructions or any good resources that I can find will be much appreciated.
Is this the kind of thing you're looking for?
Trust the forum Bear to jump straight in on a honeypot question. :lol:
Hi HB_TT. Welcome to the forums.
Usually the word "honeypot" (at least in web design) refers to a hidden form field that catches out spam bots. Is that what you mean? If so, here's a thread that may be of use:
PS: nice link, @TechnoBear
Thank you so much for the information. I find it very helpful.
It's exactly that. I appreciate your help.
Cool. Let us know if you need any help with it. Based on that thread I linked to, I've switched from using a honeypot to a timestamp, as it's less likely to intrude on legitimate users.
Thanks ralph.m, I surely will be in touch...cheers
